DigNation is a huge, free, virtual festival celebrating amazing archaeology projects around the world
All around the world, archaeological digs have been postponed, museums have been closed, and conferences cancelled. But there are still plenty of archaeologists out there who want to share their discoveries, and the amazing stories they have about their work, with you!
DigNation is a two-day virtual festival that brings together some the most brilliant archaeologists across the globe whose search for the past has been affected by the pandemic.
From Albania to ancient DNA, from Chile to Croatia, from England to Ethiopia, and from Italy to India, for 48 hours, we’re going to be streaming talks from archaeologists around the world who want to give you a behind-the-scenes look at the incredible ancient sites they’ve been working on that most people will never have heard of – but really should!
All you have to do is register and BOOM – you’ll have free tickets to a whole weekend of talks about amazing ancient sites, straight from the archaeologists who have been investigating them.
We’re still setting up the virtual stage, hanging up the virtual bunting, and still adding more and more speakers to the line-up. As soon as it’s all ready, we’ll email you to let you know what the final programme is, and how to login. We can’t wait to see you there!
